Tom Gower of the Football Outsiders and Total Titans is one of the most insightful and funny writers on the internet. I can honestly say that I would read his work on the Titans even if I didn't have to. If you care at all about football or just good writing, read everything Tom does just on principle.
His insightful and measured tweets will both entertain and inform you. He was kind enough to trade questions and answers with me about Sunday's game. I'll link my interview on Total Titans when it posts.
Fix the Titans defense without acquiring new talent...and go!
TG: Without acquiring new talent? That's tricky. Does transplanting somebody else's brain to Zach Brown's body count? Brown's definitely playing like a rookie, especially in coverage, but if he develops could be the sort of cover linebacker they've lacked and needed since Keith Bulluck's decline.
To be fair, this is about how bad I thought the defense would be last year. If you wan...

Matt Hasselbeck has come to life for the Tennessee Titans. His success should be expected as he has led teams to the playoffs on multiple occasions. He is also a veteran who knows what to expect of defenses and what plays to make off of those reads. As a fan the concern is not for taking him out and replacing him with Locker while the team is winning, it’s a concern for hampering...
The Indianapolis Colts' run defense has been more of a picket fence than a stone wall thus far this season. Through six games, the Colts are giving up over 140 yards per game on the ground, seventh worst in the NFL. Their 4.8 yards per carry allowed is fifth worst.
It's not like the Colts have been facing the NFL's dregs, however. Adrian Peterson, Maurice Jones...
The Titans are under the radar but winning games here and there. They have talent on both sides of the ball, they just don't have an exciting team.
Here's a look at their remaining schedule, predictions and the rest of their division.

It's taken seven weeks and four blowouts losses to get to this point in the season, but the Tennessee Titans have quickly been sealing up the holes in their leaking ship. After another last minute victory, this time over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday by a core of 35-34, the Titans have improved to 3-4 on the year.
Even better news for them is that they have a match-up against...
Running back Javon Ringer was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the Tennessee Titans with a torn ACL. Chris Johnson's primary backup, Ringer dealt with an infection in his arm earlier this season before suffering the knee injury during a loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He finishes the 2012 season with just two carries for 14 yards. Ringer has 486 career rushing yards...
For the first time in a long time, Chris Johnson turned heads this weekend in the Titans' victory over the Buffalo Bills. Johnson resembled the "CJ2K" that we remember in route to 195 rushing yards and two touchdowns. It was a great game, but don't expect that to be the new-old norm for Chris Johnson.
Even with his great game, the Titans rank 28th in the league...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans have signed veteran linebacker Xavier Adibi to the roster and placed linebacker Zac Diles on injured reserve.
Diles broke his right leg in last week's 35-34 win over Buffalo in his first start this season.
The 6-foot-2, 242-pound Adibi has played in 38 games over four seasons with eight starts. Houston drafted him in the fourth round...
With quarterback Matt Hasselbeck showing great poise and Chris Johnson running strong, the Tennessee Titans have posted their first set of back-to-back wins.
They have a good chance to make it three in a row if the Indianapolis Colts can't improve on the road.
The Titans look to continue their push up the AFC South standings Sunday when the Colts go for their first win outside...
